Can accessible design be stylish? Pottery Barn says yes

Pottery Barn launches The Accessible Home collection targeting the aging in place community.

SAN FRANCISCO — Pottery Barn, a brand of Williams-Sonoma Inc., just launched The Accessible Home collection specifically for people living with disabilities, injuries and the “aging in place community,” infusing the collection with Pottery Barn’s signature style.

“In our ongoing commitment to enhance the quality of lives at home we’re excited to now better serve our customers’ specific needs with The Accessible Home,” said Pottery Barn President Marta Benson. “Our mission is to incorporate accessibility into everything we do: providing beautiful, thoughtful design that makes a home a more comfortable place for everyone.”

Designed to enhance quality of life at home, The Accessible Home comprises a range of upholstery, office, dining, bedroom, bath and lighting products using designs from bestselling Pottery Barn styles. Pottery Barn designers consulted with industry experts to adapt these collections with added accessibility features.

For example, the Irving recliner features powered remotes with easy-to-read buttons, multiple reclining positions, side pockets for easy-to-reach storage and lifting to assist with sitting and standing. The Pacific desk is now wheelchair accessible and comes in modular and open shelving styles, and the Clarence vanity, Pivot mirror and Linden grab bars have been reimagined to make the bathroom safer and easier to navigate.

Pottery Barn also offers non-slip rugs, non-breakable melamine tabletop products, adjustable desks, adjustable beds and more that can support people who are aging in place or who have disabilities or injuries. Accessories like desk lamps, sconces and hooks also fit contract-grade specifications.

According to the company, Pottery Barn is the first luxury home retailer to offer an accessible product line within these categories, providing consumers with style, without sacrificing function and accessibility.

The Accessible Home is available online and in select stores.
